Microwave Leakage Testing

Occupational health and safety requirements place the responsibility on employers of providing a safe workplace. Because microwave ovens used in food preparation and staff canteen areas need to be in safe working condition, it has been raised that ovens leaking radiation can pose a health risk to workers.

Our procedure

  • Ensure microwave is in a good condition, and in full working order.
  • Check seals, hinges, buttons and ensure no damage to outer case
  • Do full testing to ensure microwave does no leak radiation above allowable limits of 5 mW/cm2 at 5 cm
  • Record any faults found to microwave
  • Apply barcode and record results
  • Apply test label stating results and date of testing
